Only 10 minutes from Zurriola Beach in the centre of San Sebastián, the language school’s facilities include a library, multimedia room, computer lab, Wi-Fi and 18 classrooms equipped with projectors. There is a nice relaxation area and terrace, ideal for a moment of peace and quiet or a coffee. A stone's throw from the school, you will find Cristina Enea – the largest park in San Sebastián, the lively Eguía district with superb pintxo bars where you can try the world-renowned Basque cuisine and the Mundiaz gym to let off some steam.

« Ja, besonders, da meine Gastgeberin nur Spanisch redete und ich gezwungen war, meine geringen Kenntnisse auch anzuwenden. »

Lacunza - IH, San Sebastian
Duration: 2 weeks

The city of San Sebastian is wonderful. Everything is fantastic: the bay, the golden sand beaches, the ocean, the streets… All of this will remain in my mind! The Spanish course at the Lacunza school impressed me. There are few students per class, which enables us to work on our weak points and to get to know the other students. The teachers are great, they teach with passion and love! I recommend this experience to everyone!

“Mira Nilsdotter, Studying Spanish in San Sebastián through ESL for the second year in a row”

I took a 4 weeks DELE-preparation course, and I couldn’t have done it at a better school! The teachers and the school staff were extremely professional, academic and helpful. Of course, a lot depends on how serious you are when it comes to your studies, but the teachers were as assisting as they could possibly be. The city, San Sebastián, is equally amazing and contains a lot of culture, architecture, activities and tasteful food. You can never get bored in San Sebastián! I lived in a shared apartment together with a couple of school staff and students. The apartment was OK, with walking distance from the school and situated in a quiet area. The interaction I had with ESL before leaving for Spain was great! Clear and accurate information and nice treatment!

As a whole, the month I spent in San Sebastián was very rewarding; partly because of all the Spanish I acquired, but also because of how ridiculously awesome it is to live in San Sebastián and the Basque country!!

Host family
Being immersed in the culture of a country is without doubt one of the best ways to learn the language. Living with a Spanish family in San Sebastián is an enriching experience, which will give you the chance to get to know the locals, their customs and the legendary Basque cuisine. It’s also an opportunity to practise your Spanish daily in an authentic context. Host families are chosen with care and know the school well. Located about 5-30 minutes from the school, you will have your own room and breakfast and dinner provided daily.

Shared apartments
If you would like to meet and live with other students from the school or with locals, a shared apartment could be ideal for you. With this option, you will have your own room with a desk for studying and share the common areas (living room, kitchen, bathrooms, washing machine) and daily life with your flatmates.

Student residence
Located in the seaside suburb of Antiguo, the residence is about a 10-minute bus ride from the town centre and the school. You will stay in a single bedroom, with your own bathroom, mini-fridge and television, and have breakfast with the other international guests in the residence cafeteria. For your convenience, a large number of communal facilities are available, including a lounge with a ping-pong table, table football and a pool table, plus a library, multimedia area, music rooms, study rooms, a gym with a sauna, a basketball court, coin-operated laundry facilities and vending machines for snacks and drinks. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the residence. Bed linen and towels are provided and changed every two weeks.

Few cities offer as many possibilities for your free time as San Sebastian: beautiful scenery, beaches ideal for sunbathing, great waves for surfing, mountains for hiking or skiing during winter, and musical and cinematic events including a jazz festival, film festival and regular concerts. You will also find a large range of sporting activities (surfing, canoeing, sailing, swimming, paragliding, etc.) and numerous options for excursions in the region (Bilbao, Pamplona, Biarritz, San Juan de Luz). Get together with your friends to enjoy the legendary local cuisine, with a glass of cider or Txakoli – so many Basque flavours to better discover the enticing nightlife of San Sebastian.
